17-year old Julie has been missing for six months without a trace and police investigator Jan is desperate to give her mother answers. When Jan finds the remains of a girl the similar age and suddenly another girl is kidnapped, he calls in profiler Louise to help understand the mind of the killer. Under the pressure to save the two kidnapped girls, Jan and Louise must predict the killers next move, while every decision they make escalates the manhunt which has severe consequences for the fate of the two girls. In order to save the girls, they must embark on a journey into the darkest and most extreme part of the human mind and face the consequences that arise. Jan and Louise constantly move around in the thrilling periphery of the murderer's view, but as the case progresses the murderer's mind and actions become more and more desperate, and it becomes unclear if there is only one killer out there.

Outstanding thriller. Don't miss !!
21 February 2021 | by julianrosser-440-787839See all my reviews

I'd say this is as good as The Bridge and The Killing. Exciting throughout with great plot and acting and no time to look at a clock. Danish thriller at its best.

The only minor criticism is that some of the syncing of the fight and shooting scenes was a bit out but that's being very picky.

Come on season 2 !!
